“Los Angeles, 1967. Welcome to the Summer of Love. Aquarius stars David Duchovny (“The X Files;” “Californication”) as Sam Hodiak, a seasoned homicide detective whose investigations dovetail with the activities of real-life cult leader Charles Manson in the years before he masterminded the most notorious killings of a generation, the Tate-LaBianca murders. A small-time but charismatic leader with big plans, Manson has begun to build up his “family”, recruiting vulnerable young men and women to join his cause. Teaming up with a young cop who will help him infiltrate Manson’s circle, Hodiak is forced to see things through the questioning eyes of someone who came of age amongst the current anti-establishment counterculture. Edgy, addictive and visually stunning, the Age of Aquarius is here. Special features: Webisodes, “First look: Aquarius””
“Walerian Borowczyk s first erotic feature, Immoral Tales tells four stories, each delving back further in time, as if to suggest that the same issues recur constantly throughout human civilization, whether involving notorious historical figures like Lucrezia Borgia and Erzsébet Báthory, or present-day teenagers.
Immoral Tales would transform Borowczyk s image from brilliant but obscure avant-garde artist to one of Europe s most confrontational on controversial filmmakers.”
Collects all 18 episodes of season 2.
“Walerian Borowczyk’s most notorious and controversial film wildly re-works the classic Beauty and the Beast story into a fairy tale strictly for adults.
Bestial dreams interrupt the venal plans of a French aristocrat attempting to save a crumbling mansion by marrying off his deformed son, Mathurin, to a insatiable American heiress, Lucy. Yet Mathurin seems more interested in his horses than in his bride-to-be, and when Lucy finds out about the story of his 18th-century ancestor Romilda’s (Sirpa Lane) relationship with the titular beast it sparks to life one of the most outrageous dream sequences in cinema history.
A huge hit in France that was extensively censored and banned elsewhere, The Beast broke new ground in explicitness and remains a truly startling experience even today.”
“What is it like to enter into the mind of a sadistic killer, experiencing his every thought… and the thoughts of his victims during their last, terror-stricken moments? From John Dahl, the acclaimed director of Red Rock West comes this fast-paced, stylish thriller that propels you into a hallucinatory realm of heart-stopping suspense that never lets up. Accused of murdering his wife years ago in a blind, alcoholic rage, David Krane (Ray Liotta, Goodfellas) is desperate to clear his name and discover the identity of the real killer. When local researcher Martha Briggs (Linda Fiorentino, The Last Seduction) unveils an experimental drug that allows the user to relive the memories of another person, living or dead, Krane sees his chance… injecting himself, he embarks on a mind-bending quest for the truth that will plunge him into a realm of physical and psychic peril beyond his wildest nightmares. The Stellar cast includes Peter Coyote, Christopher McDonald, David Paymer, Kim Cattrall and Kim Coates. ”
The complete first and final season of the American series The Returned.

“The Purge If you could commit any crime without consequences, what would you do? From the producer of Paranormal Activity and Sinister, comes an inventive thriller that dares you to survive the most dangerous night in America – The Purge – when all crime is legal for 12 hours. An intruder breaks into James Sandin’s (Ethan Hawke) gated community during the yearly lockdown and begins a sequence of events that threatens to tear the family apart. Now, it is up to James, his wife, Mary (Lena Headey), and their kids to make it through the night without turning into the monsters from whom they hide. The Purge Anarchy The New Founders of America invite you to celebrate your annual right to Purge. The Purge: Anarchy takes it to the streets, for the country’s yearly 12 hours of anarchy, when all crime is legal. This story follows an unlikely group of five strangers over the course of the night. As they fight to survive a night fraught with impossible decisions, these strangers will find out just how far they will go to protect themselves and, ultimately, each other.”
“Ah, vampire movies! There s been so many and they re so varied. Well, this one s got fangs, blood, bare flesh, blood on bare flesh, entrails, lots of cleavage, gaudily lavish costumes, beautiful female vampires, and a van Helsing or two. It even throws in a government conspiracy for good measure. The film clearly has nothing to do with Twilight, but just as clearly it has leapt on the mid-70s Hammer carriage and is flogging the horses on with gusto. –Robert Hood”
“From the pen of the legendary Curt Siodmak (The Wolf Man, Donovan’s Brain) and director Edward L. Cahn (It! The Terror From Beyond Space) comes this smash-bang thriller starring Richard Denning (Creature From The Black Lagoon) as a police doctor hot on the trail of a mob boss who’s hired an ex-Nazi scientist to re-animate his dead thugs to do more dirty work!”
“The Suicide Theory is an intense, dark thriller that takes the viewer on an unexpected rollercoaster of twists and turns. STEVEN RAY (Steve Mouzakis) is a violent hit man who harbors the pain of an incredible personal tragedy. One night, as Steven plots his next murder, he meets PERCIVAL (Leon Cain), a grief-stricken man whose unsuccessful attempt at suicide interferes with Steven’s next kill. This chance encounter introduces the two into each other’s sad and lonely lives. Percival shares with Steven that he wants to die, but miraculously survives each suicide attempt. He asks Steven to kill him. But even a professional like Steven can’t seem to end Percival’s life. What curse or blessing is protecting this desperate man? Was it purely a coincidence that brought these two broken men together or do they share a deeper and much darker bond?”
“A woman on the run from her abusive husband encounters a mysterious hitch-hiker.”
“Marty is a caustic, small-time con artist drifting from one scam to the next. When his latest ruse goes awry, mounting paranoia forces him from his lousy small town temp job to the desolate streets of Detroit with nothing more than a pocket full of bogus checks, a dangerously altered Nintendo® Power Glove, and a bad temper. Albert Camus meets Freddy Krueger in BUZZARD, a hellish and hilarious riff on the struggles of the American working class.”
“In 1996, nine college students headed off for a fun weekend at a lake house on Horse Creek. At the house, they uncovered the horrific story of Dorchester Stewart, also known as Crinoline Head, and his doll-maker mother, who once lived in the house. That weekend, six students were killed, two survived and one went missing. Now twenty years later, one of the survivors, Paul Donner, is teaching at the college he once attended. When his students discover an old newspaper article about the tragedy, they decide to visit the old lake house to learn more about Crinoline Head. While looking for answers, they discover something much more terrifying. DVD Extras: Auditions, Outtakes, and Extended Scenes.”
“Based on chilling real life events, this story charts one couple’s terrifying encounter with the dark forces of the supernatural. In 1930, Reverend Lionel Foyster and his wife Marianne move into the Borley Rectory when Reverend Foyster is named rector of the local parish. The couple’s peaceful existence is soon shattered by a series of unexplained occurrences, which quickly escalates into a heart stopping nightmare. Reverend Foyster and Marianne must discover the deadly secrets of the rectory to avoid becoming another tragic footnote in the dark history of ‘The Most Haunted House in England.'”
“HELLAWARE gently satirizes the world of high-brow art through the eyes of a wannabe photographer who becomes consumed by the bright lights of mainstream success. Jaded by the “incestuous, New York, socialite sh*t” that sells at prominent art galleries, Nate (Keith Poulson) embarks on a quest for a more authentic brand of contemporary art. When a coked-up YouTube search leads to a music video from Delawarean Goth rappers Young Torture Killers, an Insane Clown Posse knock-off, Nate knows he’s found his subjects. He soon drags his friend-with-benefits Bernadette (Sophia Takal) to rural Delaware to shoot the group playing in their parents’ basement. To “immerse himself” in the group’s culture and add an extra layer of realism to his work, Nate befriends the rappers and makes return trips to get to know them. But as his relationship with group develops, he becomes increasingly aware that, while you can take the boy out of the art world, you can’t take the art world out of the boy. 52 page Book/DVD/7″ The Book: Forward by Abel Ferrara Essays by Nick Pinkerton, Michael Chaiken, and Sean Price Williams Photography by Eleonore Hendricks “The Story of the movie Hellaware and the Fake Horrorcore Band That Went Viral” by me from Noisey.com Original art by Mike Diana The 7″ by The Young Torture Killers: Original art by Mike Diana I’ll Cut Yo Dick Off And the “slowed and chopped” remix The DVD: Hellaware Deleted/extended scenes Music video for “I’ll Cut Yo Dick Off” Directed and Written by Michael M.

“Serial Killers have fascinated us since biblical times, but at the turn of the century the insanity and carnage of the post-industrial serial killer was unlike any other. In this fascinating, yet horrifying, documentary we explore ten of the most notorious including cannibal Mark Jefferies who murdered and ate his colleagues; as well as Andreas Bichel, the well-spoken fortune teller who would read his victims fortunes before pushing in the knife. We visit the bizarre case of Romansanta, the man many believed to have been a werewolf, whose gruesome cadavers were found littered around a small Spanish town. And then there’s Anna Maria Zwanziger, the Bavarian serial killer who poisoned her employers with arsenic, and then nursed them back to health to gain their favor. Edward H. Rulloff, the man who could speak twenty eight languages, and also poisoned his wife and children to death; as well as English prostitute Sarah Freeman, who loved to kill her own family members. And last but not least, the man we all know today as Jack the Ripper, who terrified London for years with his brutal mutilations of prostitutes. From poisoning victims to beating them to death, from disemboweling to cannibalism, and from evil gangs to twisted doctors – every way of taking life was explored and no level of depravity was left untried. The world of the serial killer knows no bounds. DVD includes special features.”
“A Haunted House Marlon Wayans and Cedric the Entertainer star in this outrageously funny supernatural scary movie. When young couple Malcolm (Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) move in to their dream place, they soon discover they’re not alone. But it’s not the home that’s possessed, it’s Kisha. Now, Malcolm will go to hilarious extremes–including hiring a priest, a psychic, and a team of modern-day ghostbusters to get his place and his sex life back to normal. A Haunted House 2 Marlon Wayans returns in this outrageous and wickedly funny sequel as Malcolm who, after exorcising the demons of his ex, is starting fresh with his new girlfriend (Jaime Pressly) and her two children. But after moving into their dream home, he’s once again plagued by bizarre paranormal events. Co-starring Gabriel Iglesias and Cedric the Entertainer, it’s the ultimate laugh-out-loud scary comedy that critics call “over the top hilarious!” (Fernando Esquivel, Latino-Review.com)”
